A view template is a collection of view properties, such as view scale, discipline, detail level, and visibility settings, that are common for a view type (such as plan or elevation). You specify the value for each property in the template. You can exclude properties from a view template. Excluded properties do not require a value and are not overridden when you apply a view template.
Project views and view templates are not linked. When a template changes, all views created from that template do not automatically update. You can reapply the modified template, which overrides previous view property settings.
